5 Reasons to Tint Your Home Windows
You may not realize that the technology for window tinting and solar window films has been around for several decades. We’ve noticed that many people we talk to worry that tinting their windows will make their home too dark, that their indoor plants won’t get enough sunlight, that they won’t be able to see out of the window, or that they won’t be able to afford them if they do get them. Many of these misconceptions can be put to rest by learning about the many benefits from tinting your home windows.
Have you ever noticed that the furniture that you place next to windows tends to fade and age faster than other pieces throughout your home? Over time, the sun can decrease the life of your furniture. You may find that you have to replace your furniture or drapes more often. If you want to increase the life of your furniture, try tinting your windows. Limiting the amount of rays that come through your window will help protect your furniture from fading.
Tinting your windows can also help reduce your energy usage and keep your home cooler. Your tint can reflect light and block out heat, so you’ll find that you won’t need to have your air conditioning work as hard to keep your home cool in the summer.
Protects Your Household
We’ve had several members of our extended family suffer from skin cancer, so we look for every opportunity to protect our skin from the dangers of UV rays. Many people don’t realize that although it’s very unlikely to get a sunburn through a window, you can still get hit with ultraviolet rays that cause skin cancer. Tinting your windows reduces the amount of UV rays that come through your window by up to 99%, limiting the amount of damage to your skin.
Think back to the last time you saw a limousine driving down the street. These vehicles are known for tinting their windows to give the occupants the privacy that they want. As light reflects off the mirror, your window will act as a one-way mirror. This allows you to see outside, but it makes it more difficult for people outside of your home to see into it thereby giving you more privacy and preventing thieves from seeing into your home.
Provides Great Appearance
In recent years, the technology used to create window films has advanced to the point where it can now help your windows look sleek. Improving the appearance of your home can be a great way to increase the value of your home and the curb appeal as you look to sell it.
Keeping blinds or curtains open throughout the day allows you to enjoy natural light. However, it can be difficult to do this when we go to work on the computer or watch something on the television. Window tint minimizes the amount of glare that we experience on our screens, so we can enjoy the sunlight and our shows at the same time.
